    i absolutely LOVED Mamma Mia! it was a great two and half hour event and time just flew by. i would say it's a comedy, but there are times where it's serious and dramatic. i think u should see it! (y) (y)

    i feel so deprived next to you guys. :confused:

    i've only seen:

    rent
    miss saigon
    phantom of the opera

    and i enjoyed them in that order. ^_^

    rent is my absolute FAVORITE. the end just makes me turn into a mushball and cry with happiness.

    and miss saigon is just really poignant for me because my mother was a refugee from the vietnam war.

    and phantom of the opera was great too. :) i just had really REALLY bad seats when i saw it. -_-

    I've seen (not a lot):

    The Fiddler On the Roof
    Fame
    Shout!
    Mama Mia

    I was too young to really remember Fiddler On the Roof (7 yrs old) and couldn't stop fidgeting! :confused:
    Fame was more my style. Loved the bright colours and dancing and the taxi on stage. :cool:
    Shout! was great with all the old songs. :rolleyes:
    Mamma Mia was my favourite. Absolutely hilarious. :D :D

    Wish to see:
    Les Miserable
    Lion King
    We Will Rock You

    Phantom was my absolute favorite...even though I've seen only two! lol....amazing amazing amazing! We saw it at the Magestic Theater in NYC...so that was experience enough, but the music and story line had me interested forever. Even though I had been a fan before!

    I've only read a few plays, no acting for me!, but Our Town was an amazing story. Most of my class found it too be stupid, but the message was great!

    My two absolute favorite musicals are Gypsy and A Chorus Line. Both have such wonderful songs and really powerful stories.

    Another favorite is Once On This Island. Beautiful score, and I love the story.
